I was thrilled when Driscoll’s reached out to me to see if I wanted to partner together this holiday season for their Made with Love campaign, that includes an awesome sweepstakes to win a KitchenAid mixer (go to their site to enter!) I’m a huge fan of all berries and having toured the Driscoll’s farms in the past, I can say wholeheartedly that I love their berries. It only made sense that I would want to support a campaign called Made with Love (I mean, I call my blog Eat the Love for a reason). With that in mind, I came up with these Raspberry Cookie Bars with White Chocolate Chunks that are easy to make and perfect at a gift to give your friends, family and loved ones. Because nothing says love like a homemade present! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

Of course, I have a love/hate relationship with berries in general. Well actually to clarify, I have a love/hate relationship with baking with berries, as usually end up eating them straight out of their container (or, if I’m lucky, plucking them right off the bush or vine they are growing on and popping them in my mouth like some modern day Tom Sawyer). The hate part comes about because I often need to buy several containers of them to keep around the house, knowing that even though my recipe may only needs one container, I better have another in the fridge as I’m utterly helpless in resisting the call of a fresh berry.

That said, these raspberry cookie bars are worth resisting the temptation. The swirls of fresh cooked jammy raspberries bring these treats up a notch, and the splash of bright red color makes them perfect for the holidays and for gift giving. The fresh cooked raspberries is key to the recipe though, as it’s less sweet and less processed than a store bought jam so make sure not to skip that part! It’ll bring an extra bright pop of flavor to every bite of the fabulous baked goods. Once you make these bars, you’ll totally understand how you’ll be eating the love.

Loving this flavour! I rarely bake with raspberries and it’s such a shame!

While these may be a great gift as you say, I don’t think these will be making it out of my kitchen. They look so good I’ll probably just eat them all myself! :)

Oh I know the call of a fresh bright berry far too well! I can totally tell these bars are worth restraining myself from inhaling the whole carton–they are gorgeous and I love the pop of white chocolate too!

WOW! These are amazing! Just made them to add to the Christmas cookie repertoire, and my daughter said, “I want 500 of these”. Success

I’m going to whip up a batch of these today. Butterscotch brownies are a favorite of mine from childhood, but adding raspberries and white chocolate is a new twist. I have time to bake these today but would love to have some around for the holiday next week. Any idea if they’d freeze well?
